Example

One specific, but very important aspect of sustainable neighbourhoods is housing affordability. Increasing costs of housing is widely acknowledged as one of the most significant issues facing Auckland - one that has social, economic and environmental consequences for current and future generations. (p14).
More space for housing to be built through the outward expansion of the urban area and the redevelopment of existing areas will help to ease house price pressures, but will not necessarily mean that affordable housing will be provided in all areas, or in perpetuity. (p14)
This measure in itself will not be the solution to all housing affordability problems. It will be a complementary measure to the other objectives and policies in the draft Unitary Plan and other actions undertaken to improve housing supply and affordability. (22)
A lack of affordable housing is having a range of adverse environmental, economic and social outcomes (e.g. overcrowding of housing, reduced home ownership and community stability;
uncertainty in rental occupation; long-term costs associated with housing needs post retirement, people having to live further from work, activities increasing transport costs; increased costs of living flowing into higher costs for businesses). (p22)
With proposals to expand urban areas (both outwards and upwards), there is an important opportunity to look at how affordable housing can be delivered in an integrated way (in a way that matches with other goals relating to a quality, compact Auckland).
